CalCEF Clean Energy Angel Fund - Ideal Startup Investment
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE NO LONGR ACCEPTING ELECTRONIC APPLICATIONS.
The CalCEF Clean Energy Angel Fund is a seed and early stage fund dedicated to clean energy. The Fund deploys deep industry networks and experience to support capital-efficient companies focusing on renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy storage, and enabling products and services.
We look for strong teams, large markets, and unique and defendable technology.
Note that the Milestone Chart below is a range. We typically invest from the proof-of-concept though to product release pre-revenue stage. However, we also consider companies with revenues where they are still developing the technology or product.
We are comfortable investing 12-18 months before typical venture funds. We understand that early stage teams may not have all the pieces in place. But you should have clear ownership or license of technology necessary for commercialization. Above all, the team must be passionate about its technology and industry, as well as being open to mentoring.
